Nature X: All About Bats

Bateman Foundation Gallery of Nature

August 22 2019

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Nature X is thrilled to welcome Estraven Lupino-Smith, Bat Program Coordinator at Habitat Acquisition Trust, to learn about bat ecology and conservation.

Many of BC’s bat species are endangered and face threats to their survival. Estraven will highlight the work being done to support bat populations on Vancouver Island, as well as their own work as an artist-researcher using art to engage people in citizen science and other programming to support bats. 

Habitat Acquisition Trust is a regional land trust that conserves nature on south Vancouver Island. Through stewardship, conservation covenants, restoration, and education, they work to create a future where the full array of natural habitats on south Vancouver Island and southern Gulf Islands is healthy and conserved. See their website for more information about their programs and how to get involved.

This free presentation will begin with a drinks reception at 6:30 p.m., generously hosted by Spinnakers Brewpub. The talk will begin at 7:15 p.m.
